this morning i was live at great harvest bread company in burk, virginia and we learned how to make bread from start to finish. they even mill their own wheat. it's all natural, no preservatives and they make anywhere between 60-70 different types of bread on any given day they make 7 or 8. and they make scones ab -- and muffins and i will be disappointed every time i walk by the bread aisle because it doesn't compare to the stuff they turn out there. most everything is made by hand and it is good stuff. and it's a good community store. they give back to the community. i love the fact that if you have a new neighbor, you can go in there and tell them you have a new neighbor and they'll give you a loaf of bread and some chocolate chip
